Published in 2002 the book of photography created some controversy as it was showing nude models in religious context, touching on questions of the female place and role in religion. It's main concern, though, was "to explore the feminine aspect of God in human form, including the issues of sensuality and sexuality." In May 2004 Mr. Nimoy's Photographs were first shown at the R. Michelson Galleries in Northampton.
